I have images in the sidebar of a page (I am able to add captions to them via the media editor).

 

However, on this page - http://test.gowebgomobile.com/team/ I was hoping to make all the images (even those uploaded via the DMS editor) to be able to be captioned. When I go to "edit" on the image, it doesn't give me that option.

 

Is there a way to do this easily? 

 

Sorry for the (probably dumb) question and thx for any help.

Hi there,

 

There's a couple of ways to add captions, it depends really what sections you're putting them and where they display. If you're inserting the images manually using a text box you can use a shortcode along with the image link to include the caption. You can see that process here http://justintadlock...ns-in-wordpress

 

If you wanted captions to display in specific sections like flipper etc, that would be more complicated, you'd really need to look into a hook to add the caption. However, if the section allows a html embed, like the mediabox for example, you can add the caption shortcode in there and it will work - http://screencast.com/t/npVmp6pr1n6B

Thanks for your help.

I do know how to add caption shortcodes in posts, sidebars, widgets. The problem is that when I try to add images to the DMS media box in a section (even when I click into the media box for an image that is setup with a caption) it doesn't display as a caption with a frame and title in the media box. It displays everywhere else (sidebars, widgets, in post editor) but not when I try to use the DMS front end editor.

 

The images on this page: http://test.gowebgomobile.com/team/ have the sidebar images in caption frames and the media box images without the frames. I would like all the images on the page to be displayed with captions and caption frames.

 

I have also tried to add the shortcode from http://justintadlock...ns-in-wordpress but it just gives me a broken image. The url is a pagelines url when added to the media box even if it is grabbed from the library.

 

Thanks again for your time.

Thanks but I must admit I don't understand what I am supposed to do to fix it? Can you help with that?
